Valerian and Laureline, no longer members of any organisation, are down to doing space deliveries. With Galaxity gone and money getting scarce, their aging spaceship is becoming a hazard, which is pushing Valerian into accepting questionable cargo. After a somewhat rough landing, our two ex-agents, on their way to deliver their goods, meet some individuals with very surprising gifts who claim to be itinerant artists. But is that really all they are?
Volume 14 and I know this is a big CBO favourite but I'm not really into science fantasy though I'm told "by proxy it gets a rating of 10 out of 10"! I can't argue. Art looks nice but a bit sketchy in style but it was entertaining and it gets the Prof's (do you call him that here?) top recommendation. So it's good and proves I know very little about Euro comics!
